A 24 bus crashed into a bridge at 9am this morning on Prince of Wales Road NW5, injuring 6 people and wiping out its own roof.

The bus was on diversion following the Camden Canal Market fire at the weekend. Other buses had been successfully centering themselves and passing unharmed beneath the arched bridge since the fire cut off access to Camden High Street. We wait to hear what on earth the driver was up to.

If you normally travel on the 24, 27, 168, 31 or 46 bus please check Transport for London for updates about route diversions and curtailments and alternative ways to get home tonight.
